Design of experiments in regression models with correlated observations

This project is interdisciplinary in nature and will include elements of theoretical probability and applied statistics.

Statistical Inference for Entropy, Divergences and Renyl Information

One of the main aims of the project is to develop an asymptotic theory of the nearest neighbour estimates of Shannon and Rényi information.

Low rank approximations of matrices with a focus on statistical applications

This project will investigate the structured low-rank approximation (SLRA) problem.

Modelling of sporting events using artificial intelligence and statistical methods for big data

This project aims at systematizing and comparing different models and applying them for predicting outcomes of different sporting events

Micro- and nano-scale statistical properties of rough engineering surfaces and their tribological properties

This project will create databases of surface roughness of various engineering surfaces at different scales: atomic, nano- and micro-scales.
